Make Your Computer Talk

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008 by | Filed Under: Desktop Enhancement

Make Your Computer Talk

Did you know it’s possible to have a conversation with your computer? Yep, you can, but there is one catch: I can’t promise that your computer will be a very good listener! In all seriousness though, if you’re using the Windows Vista operating system, you’ve probably noticed that your desktop has some handy little gadgets on the side of the screen, right? Some of them look like this:

There’s one gadget that isn’t as handy as some of the others, but you can still have a lot of fun with it. It’s called Say It! and if you have speakers and Internet access, you can start using it today! With Say It!, you can hear a female computerized voice say anything you type with your keyboard. To get it for yourself, here’s what you do:

1.) Under the Gadgets bar, click on the + (plus) sign.

2.) In the bottom right hand corner of the box, click on the option that says “Get more gadgets online.”

3.) On the bar to the left, choose Fun and Games.

4.) In the third position on your desktop, Say It! 2.0 should then appear. Now, underneath that icon, there should be a button labeled Download. Click on that, confirm and then choose Open. And that’s it. You’re done!

To use Say It!, simply type in what you want to say in the speech bubble that pops up on your screen. When you’re finished, just hit Enter. That’s all you have to do!

Now, go on and have a pleasant conversation with your computer!
